Reasons I would still hold my nose and vote for him:

  • Climate change (arguably the biggest issue of our time)
  • Health care (Trump and his flunkies are fighting in court right now to return to the bad old days of pre-existing conditions. With any Dem, there’s at least a possibility of achieving universal coverage)
  • Immigration (even the worst Democrats are significantly less draconian than Trump here)
  • Foreign policy (under Obama we got the Iran Deal, under Trump we’ve come close to starting another war)

We really need to be serious about just how horrible Trump has been and will continue to be if given the chance.
